David Knight - 31st Mar 2013

Released towards the end of 2012, we've belatedly found the superb video for French indie band Stuck In The Sound by animators Alexis Beaumont and Rémi Godin.

This is a mostly 2D-rendered tale of a very single-minded young man, determined to become the first Chinese man on the moon - and whose dream turn into a nightmare the moment he achieves his goal. Action-packed, character-driven, and a great payoff - in short, it's an absolute gem. And Alexis and Rémi have some previous: they worked together on the movie version of The Rabbi's Cat, based on a popular French comic strip.
